Where: MTV Video Music Awards
Style-wise, there was a lot happening at the 1998 MTV VMAs. Marilyn Manson rocked a green and blue leopard print suit. His then-girlfriend Rose McGowan wore a dress (can you even call it a dress?) that left nothing to the imagination. Lil' Kim sported a purple jumpsuit with only a sticker to cover her left breast. Busta Rhymes and the Flipmode Squad were dressed as a mariachi band. Still, Canibus managed to stand out, though in this case it may not have been in such a great way. The rapper performed in silver body paint. When asked about the aforementioned paint, he said he wasn't trying to win an award for best-dressed. He said it was because it felt good; because he was shining. Sure.
